Current Status

On July 22, 2020 the City issued a letter to the Onni Group deeming the application withdrawn as their contract with the property owner to purchase the site has expired and has not been renewed. The Onni Group had 15 days to appeal this determination. No appeal was filed. This application stands withdrawn.
